I got my act together and now my hair is back to its normal length 🙂 This style is very quick and easy to do. I did two jumbo flat twists going upwards and made my usual fringe/pomp at the front and voila! An elegant natural hair style suitable for all occasions.
Hello, I haven’t blogged for a while. This is mainly because I’ve been wearing my signature style, sometimes with heat, and sometimes without. Also I got a bit lazy and, dare I say it, a little bored with my hair. This laziness led to dry split ends, so I had to trim about 1 inch… Continue reading New Year, Same Natural Hair Updo
Gosh, it’s been a while since I’ve posted on my blog. The main reason for this is that I’ve been either blow-drying or curlforming my hair, and my main styles have been two jumbo twists and stretched up-dos so not much variety going on. I have discovered some new products which I will be reviewing… Continue reading Curlformed Updo
I’ve been blogging since November 2012 so to mark this milestone I created this gallery of my favourite styles from the past year 🙂 As you may have observed I’m a big fan of flat-twists and up-dos. This is because they ‘tame’ my locks, look stylish and do not require the use of heat and… Continue reading 12 Months of Protective Styles on Natural Hair
After admiring my Curlformers Curls I carefully manipulated them into this cute bun. My hair is too short and fine to just wear the curls ‘out’ but this bun makes my hair look neat and elegant. I absolutely love the texture and shine 🙂
I dusted down my Curlformers to do something different with my hair this week. My intention is to use the curls to create a protective style that will last all week. As I’ve written about Curlformers before I won’t waffle on about the process. Instead I will illustrate what I did with pictures. As you… Continue reading Curlformers Curls on Natural Hair
So I’m really loving my As I Am products as they leave my hair moisturised an bring out my natural texture. I flat twisted the sides and did loose twists in the middle for versatility. Here are the styles I’m rocking this week.
The flat twists were fun but they were not really ‘professional-looking’, which is why I created this French Roll. A sort of French Roll anyway. As my hair is short it’s more of a tuck and roll updo. It turned out ok but next time I’ll twist my hair over night so that I’ll have… Continue reading French Roll on Natural Hair
This was meant to be two jumbo flat twists, but my hair wasn’t properly stretched and therefore I couldn’t ‘catch’ it very well. So I grabbed my rat tail comb and started to make swirly partings. I don’t like plating my hair straight down as it doesn’t suit my long face. Swirly larger partings add… Continue reading Casual Weekend Jumbo Twists
My hair had been protected in finger coils for a few weeks so I decided to set it free. After washing and deep-conditioning I put it in two stand twists over night to allow for some stretch. I used two medium sized hair combs on either side then loosely flat-twisted and tucked in my loose… Continue reading Hair Comb Bun Up-do
